Gem Snatcher

So this is my take on the avoider genre. Surely not the most original game, but I tried to make it fun and polished.

Use the arrow keys to move around and collect all the gems. For every gem you collect, a new enemy appears. Occasionally after collecting a gem, a power-up will appear. Collect these power-ups to boost your abilities for short periods of time. Make use of your superior dodging ability to snatch as many gems as you can!

It does seem a little bit like other games, but this is still great. First time playing I only scored a 25 and at that point it was almost crazy. I'll probably be spending many hours with my eyes glued to the screen for this.

It was...

fun! Though I played it a short time, the game played smooth. I like how some of the orbs that were usually power ups also could be your worse enemy. Great job!

best ever



I'm not big into the 'avoider' genre, but this was a fun game that looks polished. One thing I would like is if you listed all of the potential power-ups in the instructions (I know one makes you smaller, one slows the enemies, but what does the one that makes you bigger do? or the one that removes the floor for an ocean?).

Potential glitch: The first time I played it and died, I closed the 'submit score screen' and clicked on Replay - it put me in the game again with a gem and an enemy but no "me" (sphere to control). I restarted it and tried but couldn't replicate it no matter how many times I restarted.

Nice take

I know I've played games similar to this but I like the take on this one. I stupidly went for the red circles at first and didn't notice till I hit the 'game over' screen that I wasn't.

:D I got a nice score to say the least.
